Summer in Oregon is just absolutely glorious. We are rewarded for enduring the days of rain with beautiful sunshine and blue skies and here in the Willamette Valley it feels like we are getting to experience a little slice of heaven.
Farm stands pop up overflowing with every kind of summer fruit or vegetable you could possibly want and the berries…oh the berries. Sigh…they are so magnificent they almost make me ache. Ok, actually my stomach does sometime literally ache from eating too many of them but they are just so tempting!
And in our family, blackberries are a particular favorite. Around here they are put in yogurt, cereal, pies, popped into your mouth as you’re walking past the bowl and most of all, turned into blackberry cobbler.
